c# how to output Unicode characters?

I have int values stored in a list, that I want to output as unicode characters, like this:

//A List<int> named Kanji exists and has values
Console.OutputEncoding = Encoding.Unicode;
int i = 0;
while (i < Kanji.Count)
{
Console.WriteLine((char)Kanji[i]);
i++;
}


But this only returns ? characters. What should I do? The int values themselves are fine, I tested them.

Answer

The console is probably not using a Unicode or Japanese encoding, and/or the font used does not contain the required character glyphs.

Have a look at Console.OutputEncoding for more information, and the Unicode Support for the Console section.
